Teaching Ideas and Resources For Elementary Teachers

On this site I hope to provide teachers with ideas and resources that will enhance their elementary curriculum and motivate their students. As a veteran teacher of 25 plus years I've had a chance to preview and use a wide variety of resources, many that I have found very valuable in my own teaching. Resources included on this site are tried and true from my own "cabinet".  The reading resources for elementary teachers listed on my site include great ideas for teaching with technology. You can also get technology teaching ideas from my Technology in the Classroom Page. Also check my Teach With Technology Blog where I review and recommend great technology resources that can be used by teachers and with students in the classroom. 
Great Buys for Teachers, Homeschoolers, and Families
